A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater Ecosystems

December 5, 2019 · 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Capitol Event Center 1020 11th Street, second floor Sacramento, CA 95814

About the Program

California’s freshwater ecosystems are under pressure and its aquatic biodiversity is in decline. The state needs a new approach to protect the many beneficial uses that these ecosystems provide. PPIC senior fellow Jeffrey Mount will outline findings from a new report that describes a better way to manage the state’s freshwater ecosystems, and a panel of experts will discuss ways to put this approach into practice.

This research was supported with funding from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation and the funders of the PPIC CalTrout Ecosystem Fellowship.
